Issues

Campaign themes

Wheatley's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Economic Development

  • Excerpt:"We need to take a critical look at all state regulations and reporting requirements with the express purpose of eliminating as many as possible within the constraints of the interest of the general population. Additionally, any state bureaucracy tasked with the enforcement of a regulation affecting commercial enterprises should have courtesy inspectors that help businesses understand what is expected of them."

Government for the People

  • Excerpt:"As a member of the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners, Diane had to deal with the unfunded mandates that were handed down by federal and state government. She also saw their impact on local budgets."

Education

  • Excerpt:"As a long time member of the Cumberland County Board of Education and twice its chair, Diane has the experience and insight to bring no nonsense solutions to the educational challenges of the 21st century. She is known for her tireless work for parents and children. She was the first local official to advocate for schools of choice within the Cumberland County Schools."

Quality Job Creation

  • Excerpt:"To provide the jobs that our citizens need, we must create a business climate that encourages not only new businesses, but the expansion of existing ones. State government must be a partner in encouraging economic growth."
